Dion Dublin has hailed the 'outstanding' Wolves captain Conor Coady and stated that Nuno Espirito Santo has a very trustworthy relationship with his players.

During these past two seasons, Wolves have been on a remarkable rise and it looks like their train is not stopping given how well they have been performing.

After earning promotion to the Premier League last summer, Nuno's side secured a top-seven finish in the Premier League upon their return. 

 

Speaking on The Debate show on Sky Sports Football (13/05/2019 at 10:55 pm), former Aston Villa striker Dublin had not but positive praise for Wolves. 

"What I see in Wolves is that I see that they trust their manager and the manager trusts his players so much," Dublin told The Debate. "They do it to the letter. They play some good football. 

"Coady, their captain, has been outstanding for him. An absolute rock. We are talking about where are the leaders. There you go. There's one."

Added with their league success, Nuno's side also impressed in the FA Cup as they reached the semi-finals only to be beaten by Watford in dramatic fashion.

The test will only get tougher for Wolves next season because they will now be a marked target, not forgetting they could be playing in Europe. 

The Midlands outfit finished in a European place and if they can qualify over pre-season then they will be playing in the Europa League next season.
